Private pool availability dates are listed in the Home Details section of your vacation home's web page.

Some private pools have the option to be heated. Please see the vacation home description for availability dates and the heated pool fee. The heated pool option must be requested and paid for prior to arrival. Unless otherwise advertised, pools are not heated in July and August. Fees for heated pools are either fixed (plus tax) or included in the rental fee. No refunds will be issued if a guest decides they would like this amenity turned off during their stay. Requests for this optional amenity should be confirmed and paid for prior to arrival. The heated pool fee will not be prorated if this service is requested at check-in or during your stay. Please note pool heaters are delicate amenities. Their effectiveness is subject to the climate, weather conditions and ambient air temperature. Salt air is quite corrosive and may hinder the function of these amenities after prolonged exposure. Heated pools are generally able to reach a maximum temperature range of 75 to 80 degrees.
Occasionally, some pools in Dare and Currituck counties experience a mild ground current. Generally this is not caused by a pool defect or the household electrical system, but appears as a result of the earth’s natural electrical current. Certain homes may be affected and the current tends to be intermittent in nature. Please be advised that this may affect the operation of pacemakers and other similar devices.
Twiddy's Welcome Program
It’s a way for the homeowner to say, “Welcome, and enjoy your stay.”
Twiddy homes that advertise Welcome Program as an amenity provide guests with a Vacation Starter Kit for their arrival. The homeowners want to take care of some of the little necessities so you may begin to relax on your vacation. Enjoy the convenience of starter supplies, paper towels, and a trash bag all in a Twiddy insulated cooler bag. Additionally, hand soap and one roll of toilet paper will be placed in every bathroom.
WiFi is a standard amenity in most of our vacation homes (unless otherwise advertised).
Due to the unique geography and location of the Outer Banks, internet speeds are typically not as fast and service not as reliable in our area as guests may be accustomed to at home. As such, there may be times when the wifi at a vacation rental home is not capable of supporting streaming services, multiple devices, or other heavy usage. Similar to other areas, service interruptions or outages occasionally occur that require an outside company to address, and service may take longer than expected to restore. If an internet connection is required during your stay, especially for important events such as work or school, we suggest packing a hot spot just in case.
Tip: Check with your cell phone provider to see if your phone has hot spot capabilities.
